We empower the designers of tomorrow through educational tools and mentoring.

What We Do

Our vision is to be the global career growth platform for designers and design leadership.


It isn't often that I find myself giddy to write a review for a purchase, recommendation etc..., however, this is one of those moments. Michelle is an incredibly thoughtful and passionate writer and strategist with a heart for helping non-profits. As someone who is newer to the whole non-profit universe, there is a great deal of education around how things work and it can feel daunting at times. We never felt stressed out or defeated during the process, she always kept us on track and on point for working through revisions to craft the perfect language for our little non-profit startup. Michelle is a real pro, she has incredible experience with managing and tackling all the aspects of writing a Mission, Vision and Values strategy ( and much more!) and managing the project. Any organization that has the opportunity to work with and learn from Michelle should consider themselves as lucky as we do. As we continue to grow, I can only hope we'll have the opportunity to collaborate with her again! Thank you for all your help Michelle!

Mission, Vision & Values Project

Working with David and Design Mentors was an absolute joy! I find it a privilege to contribute the meaningful work of developing Mission, Vision & Values, but even more so, when doing it for an organization like Design Mentors, acting on such a strong belief and filling a huge industry void. David is passionate, responsive and respectful, all qualities of a great collaborator and client. And I look forward to hopefully working together again in the future!
